Issues I work with

I feel honoured to have worked with a wide range of people from different backgrounds, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, religions and political beliefs.

I work with individuals presenting diverse challenges including:

  • Anxiety (such as fear and worry)
  • depression (including deep feelings of sadness and loneliness)
  • relationships and family issues
  • stress
  • emotional and physical abuse
  • low self-esteem
  • lack of self-confidence
  • trauma

Specialism

My range of experience and interest is particularly strong in the following areas:

Transitions

I am experienced and deeply interested in working with individuals who are thinking about or going through difficult changes in life. These changes may range from changing jobs to separating from a significant other. I am highly conscious of the demand and challenges of living in multicultural contexts and the impact that this might have in someone’s life. I have supported individuals affected by distress and challenges. Yet I have also witnessed many victories and the profound gratifications that such changes may bring.

Depression

I have significant experience of working therapeutically with clients who present with clinical depression.

In addition, I worked at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine with people who showed physical symptoms (such as sleep disturbances, changes in appetite, lack of energy etc.) as a manifestation of mental health issues such as depression.

Traumatic childhood experiences

I have received specialist training and I am experienced in helping adults who have lived through trauma and difficult childhood events. These events include divorced parents, experiences of neglect, significant disruptions through relocation and witnessing violence at home. I am trained in exploring the effects that these circumstances can have in someone’s adulthood.
